Our SNFist Grp currently have about 32 conformed Covid-19 cases under my care at the Nursing homes. Eleven (11) of those are hospitalized under our care. Of the 32, 21 are in different nursing homes with mild to moderate symptoms. Among, the 21 in the nursing homes, 3 have expired. Another 3 was transferred to another hospital. Among the 11 hospitalized under my direct care, 5 have developed respiratory failure, 2 of which is on a ventilator. The other 2, are on high flow O2. These 5 that have developed severe symptoms have been started on the “off label” treatment combo of hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and Zinc sulfate.
Out of the 3 critical, 2 has been started on Kevzara by our infectious disease specialist as part of a phase 2/3 trial
1 out of the 3 Patients on hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and Kevzara, 1 has recovered amd was extubated. 1 has expired. 1 is still critically ill and hypoxic.
We, in the frontlines, should share treatment outcomes of the use of these meds so we can validate their efficacy.
We cant wait one year for a randomized controlled trials
Pls share the outcomes of your treatment on this forum (http://wix.to/e8CqCcw?ref=rm)
